TEANECK, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2013) - Pancetta Regional Kitchen and Wine Bar, located within the Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe, has been one of the top places to eat in northern New Jersey since it opened its doors in the summer of 2012. Now, after a $15-million renovation and the introduction of a new food and beverage director, the foodie favorite is poised to offer even more to its diners.
The Italian restaurant in Teaneck, NJ now features a modern aesthetic, state-of-the-art kitchen, restaurant buffet line and the space to accommodate up to 100 diners, making it a destination for small celebrations and grand gatherings alike.
The restaurant also added something -- or rather someone -- new to its menu in the form of a new food and beverage director. In his new role, Christopher Cassese oversees Pancetta as well as the Hackensack, NJ hotel's Glenpointe Bar, Great Room, in-room dining and catering. Cassese brings nearly 25 years of experience to the table, starting at just 15 as a dishwasher and working his way up through kitchens and hotel restaurants and operations before landing his current position at the Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe.
Pancetta Regional Kitchen and Wine Bar focuses on offering authentic Italian dishes at an affordable price, which is why its fans are both guests of the New Jersey Turnpike hotel and residents from the local area. Its weekday salad and pasta bar lunch is perfect for business meetings, and the express combos of pastas, calzones and sandwiches mean diners can get a hearty meal without going over their lunch hour.
In the evening, share a hand-tossed thin-crust pizza and a bottle from the extensive wine list with someone special. Those with a bigger appetite can dig into signature items including pancetta scallops, meatballs with ricotta cheese and pasta with "Sunday" gravy.
